National Parks

Canada has 48 national parks, each with its own unique characteristics and no shortage of nature! The most widely known and popular park is Banff National Park, but you may have also heard of Wood Buffalo National Park (the largest in the country and one of the largest in the world!), Jasper National Park, Waterton Lakes National Park and Wells Gray National Park. Ideal for travellers who love wildlife and nature, a visit to Canada is a must-do!

Cities and Towns

In addition to an expansive wilderness, Canada has many beautiful urban areas as well. The five largest cities are Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton. Of these, Vancouver is a widely popular travel destination. The atmosphere there is relaxed, the climate is mild, and you are surrounded by mountains and ocean on each end.

A beautiful country with rich history, lively culture, and varied, spectacular nature! If you prefer a small-town atmosphere, places like Ucluelet and Tofino are just for you! Ucluelet is a laid-back fishing village on Canada’s westernmost edge. Here you’ll find a pristine coastline, rainforest, secluded beaches, as well as cosy restaurants and boutiques.

Tofino is a 'hotspot' for surfers, hikers, bird watchers and nature lovers, especially in the summer. Many of the country's top chefs are based there as well, making Tofino a mecca for foodies. Go on a culinary journey in Vancouver and enjoy award-winning restaurants.

Indigenous Peoples

Long before Europeans discovered Canada, the country was populated with Native American tribes. These original inhabitants are collectively the Indigenous population, and made up of three groups: First Nations, Inuit and Métis. Today, the Indigenous community accounts for less than 5% of the total population.

Much changed for the Indigenous peoples with the arrival of the Europeans. Not only were their lands taken, they were manipulated, segregated and killed. To this day, there is a noticeable impact that colonisation continues to have on their community.

But their knowledge of the land is great! The culture and customs of the Indigenous are intertwined with nature and worth exploring. For example, at national parks on Haida Gwaii you can hear stories passed down by word of mouth from the Indigenous peoples themselves. These stories tell of the stars, of the land, and of rich harvests from centuries ago.

Climate

A vast country like Canada cannot be captured by one type of climate. In the majority of the country, you’ll find continental weather with hot summers and frigid winters (but the west coast is milder).

The northern region of Canada can have ten-month long winters! In the Rocky Mountains, the temperature hardly rises above zero. Snow-covered all year round, these mountains are quite spectacular.

Whatever you’re seeking, from ice climbing winter adventures to summers canoeing on the lake, Canada has the place just for you.

European Influence

Canada was mainly colonised by the English and French, beginning in the 16th century. In 1867, four English colonies came together to form the Canadian Confederation. Recently, in 1982, Canada became formally independent from the United Kingdom through the Canada Act. Because of its dependence on the United Kingdom, Canada made significant contributions to the Allied forces in the First and Second World War.
